I see a lot of posts of overworked people here but anyone underworked too now that we are remote? Anyone working just 2/3 hours a day and still getting great feedback?
Honestly want to know if I am being unreasonable. My husband and I have worked f rom home since the start of the pandemic. Two kids 100% remote until two weeks ago when school started back up. I had to stop my work at 12:30pm every week day to make lunch for the kids and also made some for my husband to took it to his office nook. I typically don’t have time to stop and eat myself since I’m down at minimum those 30 minutes and I work in a bedroom so the smell of food in there is not desired…
Anyone heard of CrowdHealth for health insurance? Seems pretty good for a freelancer and someone who doesn’t usually go to the doctor that much but wants to be insured. https://www.joincrowdhealth.com/

I've been working late most nights this week. In the office all week despite the WFH policy. Partner has seen me all day. I'm heading out at 5pm to pick my kid up from daycare since my husband has been doing it for me all week. And the partner says we need to catch up before the weekend. Dude. I told you I had to leave at 5pm today. I had another $75 added to my daycare bill this month for being late at pick ups. Don't look annoyed that you didn't come talk to me. I can call you from the car.
Just realized my firm offers a Roth 401k option. I’ve been contributing pre-tax but now not sure what to do. I know Roth is theoretically better, but is there any reason to do pre-tax? What about a combination of the two?
What is the order in which you Max out your retirement saving accounts? I currently do 401k up to the match, then $19.5k limit towards 401k, Roth 6k limit, and now thinking of HSA.
Deloitte folks What funds do you invest in your 401k? When I look I don’t even see the basics of VOO, VTI or VSTAX. I’m in the retirement fund and want to get out of it but don’t know what to pick
I got a new job and was told that I can only roll over pre-tax 401k because the company does not offer roth 401k. I have a lot more money stored in roth 401k from my previous employer.. what should I do to keep it?
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
How can I become more “okay” with being an average performer? I’m two years out of school and have been considered a high performer so far, but it’s taken a toll on my mental health and I feel anxious most days. I’ve realized that the cost of being a high performer outweighs the benefits, and am trying to loosen up and be more comfortable with coasting on occasion... I’m what people may consider an insecure overachiever. Has anybody here ever had the same feeling?
I get there is no such thing as optimal 401k contribution as it varies by person but is 20% too much for someone just starting out? No ROTH offered

Hi Guys, can anyone tell me when does a promotion take effect (officially) for PwC SDC Bangalore?
Thoughts on Costco sofa sets / sectionals? Not the most stylish, but looking for comfy and durable and strain resistant to survive baby and dog and extended family. Doesn't need to last forever, but 5 years of enjoyable comfy sitting, sleeping and reasonable use is all I expect. Had a trendy gorgeous velvet masterpiece before baby. I miss those days. 😔 Anyway, any advice, fabrics, or other things to consider?
I’m working on a project and the account leads are, in every sense of the word, useless, and yet have an incredible ‘holier than thou’ attitude towards telling everyone else what they should be doing.
Interviewing with a small firm. Have met with all 4 partners over zoom. Today I speaking with the associate over the phone. Recruiter says just informational and we both expect I’ll receive an offer. What kinds of questions should I ask the associate at this point?

Which Bain office is hiring now?
I have a controversial observation: Facebook seems to be using recruitment process managers to get diversity hires. I've looked at all the RPM hires over the past few years and every one of them seems to be a woman, most commonly a woman of color. I'm all for diversity, but this feels out of balance. Am I wrong?
This is not consulting directly, but curious if your state is checking if you qualify for the vaccine when you show up for an appt? I’m hearing just about anyone can show up and get it because my state just asks for ID and Med Insurance card - that’s it.

Is it socially / professionally OK to request to leave an engagement? If yes, how do you go about doing so or what reasons seem acceptable? I’ve started looking up other engagements and my reason is the clients attitude is a bit unbearable, creating a difficult working env. to thrive in and probably detrimental to my career and mental health. Do I sound like a complainer or is this OK to do? Keep in mind, the clients employer as well as EY is aware of clients attitude and had several HR conv. w/
